And Then I Shall Be King!

And so the word was spread, to near and far, from village to hamlet across the land, that whosoever shall pull the mighty stick Excalibur from the ground shall be declared ruler of all Dogland. At least that’s what I tell myself. Stupid stick.

Listen, Neil H., supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical woodland ceremony!



  1. German Shepherd sets out to do something,it’ll get done 🙂
    Beautiful dog.

  2. I love the slow wagging tail like ‘yeah it’s prolly not gonna happen but i’ll have fun trying’.

  3. Doggie swearing. Marvellous.

  4. Awww… poor goggie. He was so determined.

  5. Elaine From L.A. says:

    Poor puppy :~) But the best part is: “Stupid stick.” Brilliant, NTMTOM. I’m ROFLHOL :~D

  6. Oh the frustrated dog souds to funny 😆
    Also I love how he stops now and again to look at the hooman like: Why are you standing there not helping me?

  7. What is with the orange hanging around his neck?

  8. Oh geez, I missed the Monty Python reference tucked away almost like a postscript/epilogue.

    Thank you for feeding our pop culture appetite.

    [waits for a coconut/killer bunny reference]

  9. Sounds a bit like the porcupine,Teddy Bear, eating corn.

  10. He’s got nasty, big, pointy teeth.

  11. Yes, someone have a theory about the gadget around his neck? I first thought maybe it was to slow him down and keep him from running too far ahead of his humans…but a dog who tries to uproot large trees would need something way bigger and heavier to slow him down even a little bit.

  12. Haha, poor pup. I just wanna go over there and say here ‘Here, I’ll help ya pull, maybe we can do it together?’

  13. I thought it was just the pup’s ball-on-a-rope toy he was carrying with him just because.

  14. ThirdShift says:

    I too, demand to know what this is! It looks like a toy? Like you stuff a t-r-e-a-t in there and you hang it on his neck and he amuses himself for hours while you watch Monty Python in peace? I gots to know!

  15. I think his hoomin keeps a stash in there for a spot ‘o’ tea like how those rescue mastiff’s carry around a teeny barrel full of liquid courage!

  16. I think it’s a gadget to carry poop bags in.

  17. Martha in Washington says:

    I kept waiting for the full-sized tree to pop out of the hole when he finally got it loose!

  18. Aww, poor guy. You can hear the frustration in his vocalizingks. 🙂

  19. That just made me grin. That dog’s noises were so funny and adorable. So glad it got caught on camera!

  20. I’m thinkun that all the growlinks are actually some doggy swearin’! Love when he stops @ about :20 and looks around, like…”help, anyone?”

  21. YES!!! 🙂

  22. But if I went ’round sayin’ I was Emperor just because some damp dryad lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away.
    Help! Help! I’m being repressed!

  23. The text made me lol more than the video!

  24. i asked, and he said “my master made this collar so that i may talk.”


  25. bring out your cute! (bark)

    bring out your cute! (bark)

  26. Poor thing……go get a saw and cut both ends so he can have his stick !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. januaryfarmer says:

  28. Doggy does not understand why stickdoes not allow itself to be picked up
